Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22 and teaches people that the planet belongs to everyone, so everyone is equally responsible for protecting it. Many events are demonstrated worldwide to raise awareness about how we can show support for environmental protection. It is a day to inspire appreciation for the Earth’s environment and learn the many issues that can threaten it.
Here at Legler Orthodontics, Earth Day is not only important to us on April 22 every year, it is extremely important to us every day! All three of our offices are located on the Treasure Coast of Florida: Vero Beach, Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie. The beautiful waterways of this area are what attracted Dr. Lee Legler to start practicing here in 1991. His love of surfing is even carried through in the theme of all our offices! So keeping our waterways on the Treasure Coast clean and safe for the generations of “Legler Smiles” to come is quite important to all of us here at Legler Orthodontics.
Please join us this Earth Day and every day to help protect our waterways of the Treasure Coast of Florida. You and your family can make a difference today!
